Are on my blog! Please take a look!

For those that don't know, DH just got back from a business trip to Tokyo of all places! He took bunches of pictures! It's really funny to see what he thought I would want to see. He also brought me back a little porcelain froggy ring box. So sweet!

Looks like a nice place. Did he like it there? My brother's friend was sent to Japan on his mission way back in the early 90s. He totally loved the country. He stuck out like a sore thumb among the natives, though, and was quite a novelty to many people, particularly children. He's about 6'8" and has bright red hair and is extremely pale lol Finding a bike was quite an experience for him. He eventually found a very tall military guy who was being transferred back to the US and was able to buy a bike from him. The typical Japanese bike was way too small.

He loved it there! He especially loves the history and the culture. He even learned how to eat with chop sticks! And that is BIG for him! He stood out a little bit because he was head and shoulders above the crowd, but he has dark hair so from the back nobody would really know except for his height! I'll bet they loved your brother's friend though! LOL His dad gave him the tip about business cards and bowing so he was good there. His co worker tried to put someone's business card in his wallet though and the Japanese guy nearly threw a fit until Dh caught him!
